Somehow, though, all that stress melted away when I got the cabin. The cat stopped screaming, as she'd been for the past 4 hours, the new paint job in the cabin is lovely, and when I turned on the lights, I saw that our fantastic neighbors, Ross and Liz, had already set up the christmas tree. And put on the lights.
It's amazing what a little kindness can do to a person. I seriously almost started crying. They had already offered to pick one up for us, but I was fully anticipating an awkward "Sooo... when are you going to buy me a $50 tree?" talk. Sweetest people ever! I need to bake them cookies. After I finish this glass of Bailey's.
Anyways, my Dad flies in on Wednesday afternoon, and I have plenty to do before then. Meijering galore. For tonight, though, I think I'm just gonna kick back, drink more of this delicious, delicious Bailey's and watch some bad DVDs. Holidaly cheer, indeed.
